Ian Parke: Civil Engineer at EDF Energy Renewables' Blyth Offshore Wind Demonstrator Project
I have always had a desire to be involved in real hands-on civil engineering projects. Blyth is giving me first-hand experience in the construction of an offshore wind farm, which I am thoroughly enjoying.
I previously worked on the construction of steel plants in the UK and abroad. I jumped at this opportunity because it is new and exciting.
If you have the basic skills of civil engineering under your belt, it can really take you anywhere.
